Williams-Shapps Plan for Rail: fare reform

Inquiry

In May, the Government published a White Paper on rail reform, the Williams-Shapps Plan for Rail. The White Paper represents the greatest change to the railways since the end of nationalisation almost 30 years ago. This inquiry will focus on the Government’s proposals for fare reforms and how the new system will benefit consumers.

We will also look at the impact of the new system on finances and risk and explore topics such as flexible tickets, smart ticketing and the impact of COVID-19. Examples of good practice abroad and at home will also be considered. We will then make our recommendations to Government.
